Tom Ellis also opened up about his experience of moving to the US. The actor said, “It’s been really strange. It’s been a really amazing hunting ground on the work front. I’ve got on really well here. But one of the things I’ve had to get to grips with is self-promotion because people do that unashamedly over here. You have to walk into a room and talk positively about yourself.”
Tom Ellis feels that the UK and the US are culturally different. He said, “If someone goes into a room and bigs themselves up, they’re seen as arrogant. I don’t know necessarily if it’s about arrogance. It’s about backing yourself. That’s OK in America. In the UK it’s like you need other people to affirm you.”
